In Other NewsHi everyone! I've missed you all! It's been ages since I've been on here or posted anything.
Here's a little update:
November 10th, 2011 I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I went through treatment, and finished radiation about 3 months ago.
I'm doing well, and I'm learning how to live my life to the fullest at this point.
After losing my Mom to cancer 2 years prior, this was all quite a shock. So much has happened, and I have grown so much as a person.
I'm definitely NOT the same Katy I used to be. She's gone.
The girl who was constantly depressed has left the building.
There's no time for that bullshit anymore.
Since treatment has ended I've been enjoying my new hair, and also my new "life partner" Portimer. No, he's not a person, he's a chemo port in my chest. I will have him for a while, until the coast is clear.
Unfortunately the type of cancer I have is very aggressive, but also like to recur in the time span of two years or less. Everyday I worry and feel anxious

I'm having a little trouble building an environment for my character. I am a stickler for that sort of thing in writing and role playing, and since I'm in a bit of a rut I find myself unable to really come up with much. I am enchanted with the array possibilities of artistic liberties and interpretation, so I figured it was due time to pass the torch and see what others had in mind for her! For your entry, you must draw my OC Toast with you, your character, or just random classmates doing something silly on her school campus! For example; eating something gross at lunch, passing notes with crude drawings, making faces while teachers have their backs turned, hiding something in their desks, snoozing during a lecture, hiding during gym, wa

Art and perfectionismDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and perfectionism6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Perfectionism can be a good and a bad thing at the same time. We strive for it, but sometimes the result doesn't exceed our expectations. And that's okay.
Not every single artwork you make has to be a masterpiece. Make some sketches, speedpaints, studies - just do something. See your flaws, be aware of them - and work on them. Don't put yourself down with negativity. It never helps. It takes time to learn, to gain new skills and make art. Through many hours of work we achieve what we want. And it takes time.
It's so easy to give up. To think - what's the point in doing this, if the artwork is never perfect. Art doesn't have to be always perfect, it has to be made. We have to get used to the fact that we'll never be good enough - there is a beauty in that, because we have something to strive for, to experience and observe.
Making art is difficult and yet it's fun. En

The common misconceptionWhen giving workshops last weekend, I was confronted with something at least remarkable.The common misconception6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I had a random chat with a girl that apparently knew me from DeviantArt. We a friendly conversation about art such. It wasn't that strange, until she concluded her message with.
"It's nice talking to you. I always wanted to know what you were like. You know... since you draw so well"
And I was like... "Huh? What?"
Some people see me as a talented writer or artist, others (including myself) raise the bar even higher.
But regardless of what you see as skilled or not, I don't think there's such a thing as 'them' and 'us' in the art world. It's too small of a world. We're too alike. And I think most of us aren't exactly prone to living a celebrity lifestyle anyway. Bitches & bling don't match well with the usually quiet lifestyle an artist prefers.
When I started doing painting, I looked up to many of the lo

A Beginner's Guide to Offering Commissions OnlineI decided to write this journal because in the last month alone, I had about five young artists ask me this question in one form or another: "How should I go about offering commissions?"A Beginner's Guide to Offering Commissions Online5 months ago in Personal More Like This
This seemingly easy question can actually be quite difficult to answer. The first time I was asked this question, I expected to write only a paragraph response. I was shocked to find that once I had finished writing my response, I had been writing for almost a half hour and had written five paragraphs. Why is this not a simple question? I think the answer lies in the fact that how to offer commissions is not altogether intuitive. I know that when I began to offer commissions, I was at a complete loss. It took me a few years before I got into the swing of things. Even now I make mistakes. So, without further ado I present a beginner's guide, built on my many mistakes, many accomplishments, and 5 years of experience!

Spain X Reader (LEMON)- All The WayIt was a late summer's evening, and you were with your boyfriend, Antonio. The two of you sat by the fire, exchanging stories and laughs.Spain X Reader (LEMON)- All The Way1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"____, I really believe I'm in love with you..." Antonio whispered softly. "We've been together a long time, and...I...I wanted to ask..." You stared at him, your eyes sparkling innocently. "D...Do you think w-we....could....go all the way...?" Your eyes widened as your mouth gaped open in shock. Did you hear him right? All the way? With Antonio? The very idea made you shiver with excitement. You blushed intensely and your eyes darted to the side.
"...Yes..." You finally answered. He looked up at you with a slight smile.
"Really...? Are you sure?" Antonio asked, his eyes lit up by the fire.
"I'm positive..." You whispered. He pulled you closer, staring into your eyes as he kissed your lips softly. His tongue begged for an entrance, poking at your enclosed lips. You moaned softly, allowing him to dart his wet muscle into your mouth, tasting the inside
Commission Info OPEN***there are specialty commissions on my commission widget!Commission Info OPEN1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1) :iconavengrs: Animated Journal Doll
2) :icon0verd05e: Linked Icons
3) :iconmad-hybrid: Static Icon and 4 Walksprites
Please know that I can turn away any commissions that make me uncomfortable or any that I dislike. For example, sexual scenarios, overly complex characters, and characters that don't have a proper ref sheet. (If you only have a few headshots or something of your character, I can't really be sure I'll get the design right ;; save your money hun)
I would prefer you pay up front! But if you really don't want to that's fine <:
---I will also choose what I think fits best for the character in all the pixel art unless you tell me specifically what you want! Sometimes I try out new things, so if you want something like one of the examples, please let me know!---
Anything not animated or not pixel art in general, I get done SUPER fast. If it's animated, I take a long time :""P I try and get

You heard it right!
I'm doing a contest after quite a long while whitout one.
The theme of this contest is simple and hopefully fun!
All you have to do is to choose your favourite song (try to find one whitout too many repetitive lyrics, if they/he/she/it sings the main part a couple of times it's okay) and then..wait for it...
draw/write/sculpt or in any other artistic way create a piece that goes with it! That's right. I don't care if you create earrings to a song you like as long as you know how to comment why it goes along.
I'm doing this, because I know that Deviantart has more than just artists that draw incredible pieces, it also has writers and sculpturs and many many other incredible people. So whichever is your 'weapon' of choice, you have all the chances as winnin

No games, no sale.The day the Xbox 360 was released, I was still working at Rare and was therefore an employee of M$, so I was given one for free.No games, no sale.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
As there are 100,000+ M$ employees, each of them receiving a free 360 might have had something to do with the shortage of the consoles in the stores at the time.
GO GO M$ BUSINESS SENSE!
Back in 2005 there was no point in actually owning a 360 or a PS3 the first year they were on sale as there simply weren’t any titles worth playing. You bought the handful of available games out of desperation, not because you had any real WANT to experience them.
It’s the same case now, only I no longer work for M$, so I actually have to make a choice this generation.
I have no interest in the bells and whistles of either the Xbox One or PS4. I don’t care about the Kinect or whatever the PS4 controller’s erogenous zone is called. I don’t care about the obsession with social networking both machines seem to have. That’s all as superfluous a
